I have just found out my ct scan shows recurrance of cancer in abdomen after only finishing first line chemo of carboplatin/taxol (but reacted to taxol on second session so just carbo after that) in July 2012. Seeing oncologist on monday but macmillan nurse told me will be more chemo. Also told unlikely to be looking at cure now but keeping as under control as can.
I am feeling that now is the time to get a second opinion on my second line treatment as I feel that this is the time that treatment starts to vary. Up to now I have followed a similare course of treatment to most ladies, operation then six lots of carbo. I dont want to offend my oncologist especially as he is new but dont want to find myself a few months down the line wishing I had done it
I am looking for help and advice on
how to go about getting a secon opinion
any experiances of it and
can you request who you get one from and also who are the experts to go to.
I know alot of questions but I know there will be others here who have faced the same issues.
Any help will be most appreciated.
